Sachie Saigusa-Sensei and her Sumie Society of Hawaii students marked the conclusion of their 16th annual exhibition of Japanese brush paintings at Honolulu Hale with an awards luncheon on April 27 at the Ala Moana Hotel.

During the program, which was organized by the Makua Alii chapter, Saigusa-Sensei presented an Intermediate certificate of achievement to student Suzanne Ota. The Hawai‘i-born Ota said she had never taken an art class in her life and started learning sumie with Saigusa-Sensei after moving back to Hawai‘i from Los Angeles.
